In my new collection, ARCTIC, I pay tribute to the beauty and harshness of the wild Arctic nature.
The idea arose because I want to focus on global warming and the vulnerable nature in the Greenland arctic.
It scares me to see how fast the Greenland ice cap melts – It scares me when I think about the consequences. We must take care of nature. Here you can get some tips on how to take care of the environment.
In the new collection, you will find glasses with the looks of raw wood and horn in natural colors.
Of course the horn look is not made from real horn, since this is not sustainable. The glasses are made of
biodegradable cotton fibers, and the surface has a raw horn look. It is a brand new monkeyglasses®-look.
Cool glasses should not only meet a need to see well but must also be sustainably produced and
supporting the causes that are important to us. We also have keyholders and bracelets decorated with beads shaped like ice cubes. We make the jewelry in accordance to our ZERO WASTE program, which secures zero waste from the production of the glasses.
The first Eskimo goggles were used 4,000 years ago, made from wood and horn with a thin slit in order to prevent snow blindness. The solar radiation is extremely strong in Greenland, and it is therefore very important to protect the eyes. Other sunglasses were made from bone.
